Prince Charles wasn’t thrilled to learn that Prince Harry will be releasing a memoir soon.

According to OK! magazine, Prince Harry didn’t tell his dad or Queen Elizabeth that he was writing a memoir.

So, when the news broke out across the globe this week, Prince Charles and the other members of the royal family were surprised.

A source claimed that chaos ensued after the bombshell news swept through the palace.

Earlier this week, Prince Harry confirmed that his memoir will be released next year. He also said that he will not be writing it as the prince he was born as, but as the man that he has become.

“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story — the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think,” he wrote.

Prince Harry also said that he’s grateful for the opportunity to speak his truth. And he’s also looking forward to his fans getting a firsthand account of his real struggles and experiences.

Meanwhile, the royal family is reportedly flabbergasted by the news. During an interview on Today, NBC royal commentators Daisy McAndrew revealed that Prince Harry only informed the royal family about his memoir hours before he made an official announcement.

Prince Harry isn’t the only renegade royal to ever publish his own memoir. In 1956, Wallis Simpson also published her own memoir called The Heart Has Its Reasons.

Edward, Duke of Windsor also produced a ghost-written biography called A King’s Story: The Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor in 1951.

“Given my character, my roving curiosity and independence, my life appeared to form a disconnected pattern — duty without decision, service without responsibility, pomp without power. Meanwhile, something had happened that, although I did not realize it at the time, was destined to change the whole course of my life. I met Wallis Warfield Simpson,” the Duke of Windsor wrote decades ago.

Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson also released her own memoir after her divorce from the Duke of York.

Other royals whose so-called life stories have been told on their behalf include Princess Diana, Prince Charles, Meghan Markle, Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth, and more.
